Yes, they are scoped, but I don't think they have unique identity at 
the enumerated value level.
For example, if the following appeared in an XML Schema:

	<xsd:simpleType name="DistStatusList">
		<xsd:restriction base="xsd:NMTOKEN">
			<xsd:enumeration value="actual"/>
			<xsd:enumeration value="exercise"/>
			<xsd:enumeration value="system"/>
			<xsd:enumeration value="test"/>

Other schemas can refer to the "DistStatusList" data type, but not 
directly to any of the values.
